Creative problem solver with a diverse background in retail, community development, and event planning.
I play a leading role in planning new outreaches and community events. One recent example was an event called Praytography, when we transformed the church into a photo gallery made up of submissions from both local professionals as well as amateur submissions from the community. In addition to planning the event I took part in designing the space, curating the pieces, and coordinating with the local musicians we brought in for the show.
My role as Cru staff is to mentor high school students in and around Long Beach, helping them to mature emotionally, academically, and spiritually. I spend time each week at several local schools doing after school programs and lunch time club meetings to build a secure community in which students can explore difficult questions about life and receive support from caring staff and peers.
In addition to my weekly meetings with students and teachers I also share responsibility for several conferences throughout the year where I am in charge of stage design and program development.
Some of my basic responsibilities included meeting customers and offering assistance, organizing merchandise, and creating displays. I also stayed up to date with the most recent product trends to help customers find exactly what they were looking for (specifically related to outdoor gear).
I became especially good at locating lost inventory and reorganizing confusing and inefficient displays. I received some training in loss prevention with the goal of receiving a promotion but had to leave for college before my full responsibilities had been transferred over.
I was largely responsible for managing the kitchen, which involved everything from cooking and cleaning to reordering/restocking prep ingredients and training new employees.
Ran the cash register and made smoothies while also working in the retail section selling vitamins and other supplements. Using smoothie orders as a reference I was able to increase purchase totals by connecting customers with supplements that fit their lifestyle and health goals.
My focus is in Linguistics and I am finishing a minor in Biblical Studies.
I was heavily involved with the Worldview Initiative, a team that traveled to local high schools and community centers offering talks on philosophy and pop culture.
I transferred to Biola in 2014.
